, massachusetts. kerry sanders is also on the scene there and speaking with witnesses there this evening. if you could set the scene as to what's happening right now. we're looking at taped replay from the climax of this activity. if you can tell us what's happening right now. >> reporter: well, let me step away from the police line to get back in view. we're in the business district. traffic lights and, of course, often this is now police officers and police cars. but the number of police officers and cars that were here has changed considerably. most of the officers who responded in an incredibly high rate of speed from m.i.t. over to here have left the area. now, the distance from where the shots were initially fired at an m.i.t. police officer and to this location, it's about 4 1/2 miles. would be a normally 15-minute drive with the traffic and traffic lights. of course, the police officers responded here in excess of 100 miles an hour. and as they were heading over here and chasing somebody, two suspects, we believe, witnesses say they heard boom and then another boom. and then they heard c

want to bring in kerry sanders who is live on the phone now. he is also in watertown. and you've been covering this story all night from the very beg beginning. how did all of this start? >> i'm around the corner from andrew, what he saw from his position. he can't see what i can see because of where he is. i'm sort of like half a block around the corner from him. but there's 35 police officers that have saved themselves in an area here. looks like they were getting ready to make walk the streets to look for something but then they broke up. some of the vehicles are pulling out of here. and in those vehicles, unmarked vehicles are federal military s.w.a.t. team. and using that description sort of vaguely because they won't identify themselves. but the way they're dressed, the gear they're wearing including night vision gear and they're dressed in military garb, they may be a state agency, but it says v-14 on their soldiers, they have american flag patches and packed to the hilt with every armament you would need to move through here. they have pulled back. two per vehicle, six vehicle

itself in a different location. mara. >> all right. kerry sanders, thank you. it is now top of the hour, 5:00 eastern time. some six hours since this story began to unfold with a shooting on the campus of m.i.t. i want to bring in now nbc news justice correspondent pete williams, who's been in touch with his law enforcement sources on this story all night. pete, what can you tell us? >> well, i guess there's several things we're trying to nail down. i guess the big question here now is who are they? we've heard from a couple of officials that they don't have a positive identification on them, but they've been tentatively identified. they believe, at least it's the initial assessment of the two law enforcement people i've talked to, that they came to the u.s. about a year ago. we don't know precisely from where. they may have some -- a bit of military experience overseas, which could possibly explain their facility with explosives. and that is our operating assumption right now. it appears that this all started when they tried to rob a 7-eleven tonight. a policeman responded. they killed
and seeing what we now know as suspect one. kerry sanders was among those on our team originally assigned to this story in boston. then came word of the cop shot in cambridge, not far from the harvard campus. then came word, shots fired, three explosions in watertown, mass. >> reporter: it's been chaotic since really. arriving in watertown in the aftermath of the explosions and the shootings, the officers were so concentrated on what they were dealing with and i'm talking about more than 100 officers that as a reporter, as bystanders, one guy rode his bike. up to what was going on. right up there just out of curiosity. wasn't really until the officers realized that things had moved into another section of watertown that they could turn around and start pushing people back because they were so concentrated on the suspects. then i went on foot with a camera crew and e we started walking in through some of the neighborhoods and stumbled upon one of areas where there had been an exchange of gunfire. and that is where one witness had been actually skyping and looking out his window and showing
like lester holt, kerry sanders that gunfire had taken place. this will whip up the crowd. the fire engine hitting the siren on the way out. this will begin the slow parade of fire and police out of the scene. apparently the suspect was holed up under a tarp in a trailered boat in the backyard of a private house. two or three-story frame house. and all this time we have been waiting for this to resolve. s.w.a.t. teams were assembled. and he's being transported to the same hospital where an mta cop is recovering from gunshots sustained last night. as this slow parade of vehicles now exits, kerry sanders, what a wild -- what, 20 hours, 18 hours it's been in that town. >> i've got to say i'm lost. it's been -- i guess i started working thursday at 5:00 a.m. and have been working straight through. it's hard to keep clear everything that's been going on. wayne metrano is a resident here. there are members of the community we hear cheering, high fiving, big smiles. how do you feel now knowing that this is over, that he's in custody and he's alive? >> it's been a busy 18

out. for the most part, very calm. we saw a few hours ago with kerry sanders being pushed back, if you saw that video, he was pushed back because there was some action going on a few blocks away. since then, it's been pretty quiet. we've seen military helicopters land, take off, circle. a police helicopter was circling this area for a few hours. that's no longer the case. we're on the main drag of watertown and there's nobody out here. it's a friday afternoon. it's a nice day. it's windy, it's a little overcast, but for the most part it's a pretty warm day here it it's remarkable to see just nobody on the street. it's a really early feeling. it's hard to describe. >> i can about imagine. you've been doing a great job describing it throughout this day for us. i know people didn't even bother coming to work. so many of those businesses are shut down. i know we've had your camera pan over to the side. people are not walking. they are staying inside. trying to find out from authorities when they can go outside safely. >> in fact, boston police have asked everybody in the boston metro area

and the boat itself remain sealed off by police. lester? >> kerry sanders, thanks. >>> and while the crisis is over, the investigation of what motivated the suspects is just beginning. nbc's national investigative correspondent, michaelis isakoff, has spent the day looking into the matter. >> investigators are intensely focused on the background of the tsarnaev brothers and what drove them to terrorism. meanwhile, federal prosecutors are prepared to file criminal terrorism charges that could carry the death penalty against the surviving 19-year-old suspect. the younger suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev, captured live last night, is under guard at a boston hospital. federal agents are waiting to question him. as soon as his medical condition allows, about whether he had any accomplices or overseas connections. authorities believe his older brother, tamerlan, killed in a gun battle early friday morning while wearing explosives strapped to his chest, may have instigated the plot and persuaded dzhokhar to join him, but why? the brothers originally from chechnya, were raised in the u.s., living in the

or organization? >> don't know the answer to that. >> we heard from nbc's kerry sanders a few minutes ago who was watching the activities of s.w.a.t. teams. metal detectors were set off in a building. several blocks of watertown are sealed off right now as police take control of the crime scene area and obviously try to find this other suspect. pete, let me ask you, as you just confirmed that the two men in the pictures are the two men involved here tonight. i had heard from another police officer here who was just briefing reporters casually suggesting that they might be looking for others. have you heard anything else? >> i don't believe that's the case now. this is becoming more and more clear, they are looking for someone. our sense is, there were just two people involved here. again, the caveat that this is a fluid situation and our understanding of this changes every 15 minutes. the person you're looking at now the so-called "black hat" suspect from the boston bombing is dead. and that the white hat suspect is at large. they are trying to find him, and so we believe they're just two peo
. >> let's get to nbc's kerry sanders on the other side of watertown. what are you hearing? >> okay, so let me sort of back up because earlier today we've been telling you about a moment where the officers came down arsenal street, the main street here, and to me it appeared they were drawing down on an individual that was laying on the sidewalk. and i got myself behind a car. i was looking, ingot a glimpse of what appeared to be a person. i can now confirm it was a person laying there. the authorities thought that person was the suspect. the number two suspect that they've been after. and so when they drew down on him and got him down and the officers went running down the street, this guy was basically sited by more than 100 weapons from the police. the authorities pushed us back and has taken some time to really get an answer as to what it was. i got to say, glimpsed it awfully quickly. i can tell you from sources in the police ranks here that that was a person. it all ended when they eventually determined, which took a long time, he was not somebody they were after. and that he did not
to happen when kerry sanders goes we just heard gunshots. we just heard gunshots, folks moving a few blocks up. quite remarkable that he was able to evade capture, wounded, with no formal military training. that's certainly a question a lot of people are going to have moving forward. >> okay. luke russert outside of beth israel medical center. thank you so much. joining me on the phone right now, former fbi profiler and nbc analyst clint van zandt. clint, talk about those questions that luke was raising. how this guy was able to evade capture. i mean, when law enforcement puts in a perimeter, what's the criteria in judging how far to go? >> well, alex, you normally have two different perimeters. you have an outer perimeter that is -- you believe is the furthest distance out that either the subject could go or that his weapons would be functional. and then you have an inner perimeter, if you know exactly where he's at. and again, watching and listening last night, it sounds like that this 20 block perimeter that they threw around was, you know, should have been 21 blocks. that somehow, where

a considerable distance away from what has developed there. >>> we're going to take you live to kerry sanders on the "today show" at this moment. >> i wish i could give you a better explanation as to why. at this point it's safe to say it's incredibly intense when an officer is telling you to get on the ground. >> we want you to do what the officers el you, kerry and the crew as well. this is an incredibly intense situation. watertown, massachusetts. >> can you see the picture right now? >> i see a picture here you are. we see you. >> okay. great. so let me sort of take you through. let me show you what you've got. down here. that's the u.s. army. if you go all the way now about a block and a half -- live camera. thank you. down on the walk here from left -- well pass many of the police officers they have been taking their positions that would appear to be to me somebody laying on the ground the like a turquoise shirt. the person on the ground did not appear to be moving at all. >> kerry, standby there. keep us posted. somebody with great expertise in a situation like this. nobody has experti
this happened and who's responsible. rachel? >> nbc's kerry sanders, thank you very much for appreciate you being out there in the cold for us and keeping us apprised. you know, it is remarkable, the one thing that has changed over the past decade is the word from law enforcement when incidents like this happen. it used to be about leaving the police to do their job. more and more, you essentially hear police, fbi, law enforcement of all kinds saying, give us everything you've got. tell us everything you know. don't self-censor. if you think you might have something, even if you don't know that it's directly material, but you think it could be, tell us, we'd rather have it than not have it. we have more faith in our data mining abilities than we used to. intelligence-based law enforcement apparatus in this country. we want it if you've got it. seeing that shape, seeing that change over time gives you some sense of the way we've evolved in terms of both law enforcement and counterterrorism. both at the international level autoal but responding and being resilient once it happens. peter kraus
going down the street in one direction. a number of military vehicles. i think kerry sanders referred to those. there are some national guard military police units along with explosive ordinance and experts in dismantling or rendering safe, explosive devices. they need that robust presence because explosive devices tau d tossed f eed from the vehicle a tossed at police. explosive devices there, as well. it's a ghost town here. really remarkable scene. normally large media settings like this, you get a lot of people coming out and curious and wanting to take pictures. not a lot of that here. these streets are empty people are genuinely concerned and genuinely afraid and my guess is they're locked on to local tv. very unnerving thought that a man as desperate as this man apparently is is an incredible danger to everyone. >> lester holt in watertown. as we know, the manhunt has been expanded there after two individuals. dzhokhar tsarnaev and an unnamed accomplice that caught an amtrak train. i want to bring in roger back in and james kavanagh. you're hearing this new information. now, a
where kerry sanders is. right down the street and to the left is where the shootout between the two suspects and police happened very early this morning. now we know that tamerlan tsarnaev was shot and killed. and when police approached him he was wearing an improvised explosive device on his body. his brother, dzhokhar fled the scene. and they're worried that he may be wearing something similar. we are not quite sure what's happening in watertown right now. but i can tell you the scene has been very fluid. it's quieted down. it picks back up. the cars have been coming in and out of here pret te steadily for the past few hours. >> nbc katy tour from watertown, massachusetts. with us on the phone is former congressman, barney frank. i can't imagine the emotions you must be feeling. you've represented the state of massachusetts for 32 years. seeing one of america's major cities, one of your, your city of boston, shut down like this -- tell us what's going through your head. >> well, i have admiration first of all for law enforcement. given the terrible acts that happened on monday. >>
major thing we heard was kerry sanders being pushed back around 12:30 or so earlier today. it's quiet here. people have been inside for the entire day. they've been inside since last night. we've seen very few people on the street here. we are in the middle of what you could call main street or the downtown part of watertown. the main area. the entire day we have been here, we've only seen maybe 5, 10, 12 people from the town come out and see what's going on. everybody is voluntarily -- they're on lockdown, so they're supposed to stay inside, but everybody is staying inside. we did see somebody come to their balcony earlier as the cops were walking by and doing their rounds and they were told to go back inside. it's anxious here. it's certainly anxious. it's been anxious all day long. you can tell it's anxious because we haven't had people come out. there's been so few, or no situations where you have gaggles and masses of news media and don't have people coming by to see what's going on. the fact everybody has stayed inside speaks to just how nervous this situation is. and just how m
. let's go to kerry sanders. we don't have him yet. >> there is a suspect that somehow was able to elude the police here. that is the second suspect. and it's possible that he -- because he was on foot, it's believed, is somewhere still in watertown. now, the authorities spent all day combing through 20 streets here and they were even going indoor homes and checking houses and finally they lifted that order for people to remain in their homes. some of them were driving out here with smiles on their faces and now all of a sudden this. i'm going to step out of the way because we have some of the folks here from the military that are pulling out as well. so the barrage of gunfire down in that general direction, it's west here in watertown and i wish i could tell you i understood more about what it is but clearly the police are responding to the gunfire. >> erica, can you hear me? erica hill, report. >> reporter: yes. yes. >> erica? >> reporter: yes. >> you're on the air. >> reporter: chris, we are here in watertown and there has been an increased police presence and with certainty, to say t
tsarnaev, suspect number two. you will now go to nbc's kerry sanders. what do you have is. >> reporter: it was more than an hour ago we were getting toward do a live report with brian williams on the network and we heard a barrage of gunfire coming from that direction. that's about two and half blocks down there. charles river would be behind me. then it sort of makes a little bit after jog and the road turns up there. we all focus had attention up there and so did authorities. there were screaming vehicles of police heading that direction. up here, armored personnel. s.w.a.t. teams up this way. then converging about 50 minutes or so of silence. then we heard four shots. boom boom, boom boom. then a little bit of momentary silence. then i think eight or nine more shots. now this is very hard to do accurately. but as best as i could tell. the shot were coming from one source and not returning. because they had a similar sound and it did not sound like automatic gunfire. it sounded like the trigger was being pull owed noted on a semi. likely multiple officers -- there are some dogs going
's a day like nothing boston has ever experienced. nbc news correspondent kerry sanders was on the "today" show from watertown when police told him to take cover. >> the officer started to yell get down, get down. >> reporter: the uncle of the surviving brother pleaded with his nephew. >> i say if you are alive turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness for the victims and the injured. >> reporter: as dusk was falling tonight, another break in the manhunt. for the second night in a row a suburban boston neighborhood was on pins and needles, jarred by something that sure sounded like gunfire. after more than 24 hours of searching, police seem to finally have the remaining suspect in the marathon bombings cornered. police say a resident here in watertown called in to report blood in a backyard leading to a boat where police believe the suspect was hiding. as an ambulance left the area around 9:00 p.m. eastern time tonight. >> suspect is in custody. >> reporter: the crowd cheered. in the end it had come down to ordinary citizens rallying to help the authorities. the younger brother now in a bo
at a later date. joining me from florida, kerry sanders. was this decision a surprise? >> reporter: we knew it was likely to come. the judge wanted it on the record in court. so george zimmerman had to go up, take an oath and go through the pieces with the judge that he, with consulting his attorneys, that he would not invoke immunity using the stand your ground law prior to the trial. now, his attorney, mark o'marra thinks he could bring it up during the trial. this is a question not for the jury but rather for the judge. and so in florida, it can be brought up prior to the trial. the judge could rule on it. if the judge were to say yes, stand your ground does indeed grant your mup, there never would be the impanelling of a jury or a trial. remember in florida, judges are elected. second of all, he can do it during trial. now, if he were to use it during trial, imagine, there would be a jury impaneled and the judge would have to make that decision. just the argument, even if it is out of jurors' ears, could in some way influence. then there is the mere possibility that once the trial is sa
